Hi there, I'm a native English speaker from South Africa. I've been teaching English online since 2012. I can help with grammar, vocabulary, and exam prep, but I also enjoy just having conversations and asking questions. I'm a very curious person, so I am happy to talk about almost any topic. I grew up in South Africa, where there are 11 official languages, so I know how to deal with different cultures and languages. In my free time, I like hiking, cycling, gardening, doing yoga, surfing, and reading. Let's have a chat and explore new topics together! 😊

I took a lot of lessons (more than 100) and I had many teachers (more than 15) and I can tell that Jessie is one of my favorite teachers. Why? Because she is very attentive, she always gives me the floor when I want to speak. She speaks but not too much (some teachers are too talkative!)And what I prefer she asks me a lot of questions. We had many discussions about different topics (travelling, dating on line, tourism, South Africa…) and it was always interesting. Thank you SUPER Jessie.
